Official Photos and Release Information for the Nike Zoom KD IV Black History Month Colorway

In celebration of the 36th anniversary of Black History Month, Nike is introducing a new, limited-edition 2012 Black History Month Collection featuring premium footwear from Nike Basketball and Nike Sportswear, along with select apparel. KD’s signature Nike Zoom KD IV is a part of the 2012 Black History Month Collection.

The collection celebrates the achievements and pioneering spirit of three important teams: 1996 USA Basketball Women’s team, 2002 Brazil Men’s Soccer team, and the 2008 Kenyan Long-Distance running team. These teams answered the call to greatness and their legacy continues to uplift and inspire their communities.

NIKE designers developed a signature graphic print and distinct colors that are featured on the shoes. This motif is inspired by the vibrant colors of International African culture, drawing visual cues from Kenyan beads, to the Brazilian Carnivale, to African-American quilt making which originated in the southern United States.

In addition to the shoes, select apparel styles include the Nike Destroyer jacket, T-shirt and snapback hat.

In keeping with a tradition of honoring this holiday by giving back to organizations that work to inspire youth towards greatness, NIKE, Inc. will make a financial contribution to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

The Nike Black History Month Collection will be available at select retailers this month and at NikeStore.com beginning February 11.
